Computex 2020 is cancelled — Computex 2021 to follow regular schedule
The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taipei Computer Association (TCA) have decided to cancel Computex 2020, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally delayed from June to September, I guess the Taiwanese saw it better to cancel it in its entirety to prevent bringing the virus back into Taiwan. In its place, Computex will be brought online with a series of online services:
- #COMPUTEXOnlineTalks – Key executives from Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Supermicro, Delta Electronics, BenQ Business Solutions Alliance shared the latest tech trends on AI and 5G and discuss for the future technology at the first-ever COMPUTEX virtual event. After its debut on June 2, the livestream was watched by over 400,000 viewers.
- COMPUTEX Online Sourcing Meetings – 30 VIP buyers from 14 counties seized new business opportunities with Taiwanese suppliers on June 3.
- #InnoVEXOnlineDemo – Startups will showcase their new products and technologies via Taiwan Trade Show’s YouTube channel on June 29.
- COMPUTEX Online 2D Exhibition – The new online platform will be launched on September 28 to display and promote exhibitor’s products and services.
Computex 2021 is scheduled for 1st to 5th June, which is the customary timing for Computex annually.
